For the first time in my life i did squats and deadlifts.
Both were 185 pounds for 3 sets of 5.
Was lots of fun Definitely going to stick with it.
My bench sucks: 135 pounds.
I warmed up for all 3 exercises.
I felt this back “pain” (you feel it after the exercise, not during). Not pain like “omfg my back” but kind of that burning “overworked-soreness” pain. I felt it more during the deadlift.
I found this odd since i seem to be built to deadlift: very short legs, average length arm and torso.
However deadlifting felt too easy. Even though im not sure i could have pulled more weight, it felt very “natural”.
When you deadlift, how is the stance different from squatting? I felt like deadlifting was kind of a mix between a 1/8 squat and a barbell row (in terms of starting position…i didnt pull the weight up).
I know i need to show you guys via video but i dont have a video camera, so until then…please advise
